romney's top surrogate, chris christie effusively praising obama's leadership. now this afternoon we have news that michael bloomberg who previously said he was not going to endorse in the presidential race has decided to endorse sandy as a reason for doing this. you know, tough to say, but it seems to me there's got to be some political upside in this for obama in terms of the election on tuesday. >> i think you're right. it might be marginal, but, you know, my analysis and i think it's probably yours, i think it's what the data shows is that romney needed one more little push to get over the edge in these closing days. if you look at the electoral map and polling, yes, it's close enough, yes, the ground game may determine what happens, but it seems to me in my analysis romney needed a little bit of a push, and he's definitely not getting a little bit of a push. if anything, i think there's a marginal benefit for the president in these last few days. now, i hate for the election to be decided by last-minute theatrics and a freak of nature occurrence. the issues have been clear for a long

barack obama and new jersey republican governor chris christie could produce what could be the biggest public works project in a generation, to meet and entrust that national emergency. remember when president obama was elected, he said he'd put a lot of people to work in shovel-ready job. turned out there weren't that many jobs that were ready in. the wake of sandy, i don't think there are enough shovels ready for up and down the jersey and new york coast. these jobs will be created. this destruction, estimated between $30 billion and $50 billion. i think it's going to exceed that. maybe at least get to the high end. will finally move the employment need until this country. -- in this country. just as did did in the wake of hurricane andrew. now, when we look at industries that have been hardest hit since the great recession, the one that stands out the most is the construction business. construction business is about half of what it was six years ago. the culprit, banks that are afraid to lend, excess of homes, no need for new buildings and roads. the federal government doesn

saying cnn. "snl" had a good fun with the fall-out including chris christie's glowing review of the president. take a look at this. >> also, i would like to give sincere thanks to president obama for how he handled the situation. on election day i'm voting for mitt romney, but if i had to pick one guy to have my back in a crisis, it would be barack obama. he has been amazing. you know, so kind, such a leader, a true inspiration. again, being a good soldier, i'll vote for romney, but i'm going to hate it. do you hear me? >> early voting has come to a close in many states, but sandy hitting new jersey is allowing voters to fax in their ballots and e-mail them in. so many rules on early voting, voter id, and provisional ballots. the use of poll monitors is growing, but the new rules are also creating confusion over the role and responsibilities those monitors have. cnn's crime and justice correspondent joe johns explains. >> reporter: long lines in south florida and in cincinnati, ohio, as early voting comes to a close. those aren't the only crowds this hotly contested election has att

-- we were just talking about working across lines. he and chris christie demonstrated that this week. >> not only that, he got to show that wonderful moment where he hugged the woman at the tarmac where he could show that personal empathy. one of the pieces of barack obama's brand that was so helpful to him in '08 was this idea that he could be bipartisan. that's always good for a president to respond well to a catastrophe. >> also that piece where, you know, of course, we had mitt romney saying, no more fema and we see exactly why we need it. thank you, too, rebecca. the rest are back for more. up next, the next generation. ♪ [ birds chirping ] are you sure you can fit in there?

. yesterday he took a tour of coastal new jersey with new jersey governor chris christie. the republican who has often criticized the president in support of mitt romney, but yesterday was in solidarity saying that the president is doing an absolutely fantastic job helping them with this recovery, and that may be helping the president too. >> the message that christie is sending voters is that obama is dog a good job. he's not a squacary socialist person. he's somebody who can be trusted. >> reporter: meantime today, governor romney also on the campaign trail focusing on virginia, a state where the polls are telling us this is a very tight race with the president having such a slim lead at the can't call it a lead, they call it a tie. meantime in new jersey, new york and other states, they're trying to figure out how they're going to get people to the polls and whether the polls will even be available in some cases considering putting up tents to make sure people get a chance to vote. laura. >> and all that damage left by the storm still a developing story this morning. it has

do. but the people who are -- and this is repeating the president's appeal, what chris christie has said, mike bloomberg, the appeal to people who are refusing to evacuate because they are putting first responders in danger and as i'm looking at the pictures of you, ron, the shape of that beach along the jersey shore is never going to be the same. this is going to have to be restored in some way because the enormous erosion already is being washed away in front of our eyes. >> andrea, this ocean, the shore here, extends out about 100 yards. it did yesterday at least. it doesn't anymore. how much of that is going to be destroyed and washed away, is unclear. and yes, yesterday there were a lot of people out here who were taking pictures, trying to get one last look because it is an incredible sight to see. i'm not encouraging anybody to come down here. the police were really trying to tell people, please get away. because again, that is one of the worst case scenarios if people stay behind, the first responders have to come in here, risk their own lives to get them out. so again, driv
